In Focus: Lebanese Jewellery Designer Gaelle Khouri

Gaelle Khouri’s jewellery brings together art and philosophy, a concept that’s too intriguing to ignore.


If you are looking to make a statement, then sculptural multi-rings and cage chokers by the Lebanese designer will be right up your street. Her creations feel modern, yet carry essence of the Middle East where women drape themselves in statement gems.


After interning Oscar De La Renta and Elie Saab,  Khouri saw jewellery as the best way to express her inner creativity and launched her label in 2015. Focusing on almost avant garde silhouettes, she designs with diamonds and precious stones in a unique way that was instantly noticed by global stores like luxury e-tailer Net-A-Porter. Working closely with artisans and spending time getting to know the suppliers, she gradually grew her collections that can almost be described as wearable architecture – bold and surprising.


Her latest line The Next Perspective is inspired by the complexity of the human mind. Pieces are comprised of intricate compositions of abstract ellipses, representative of the interpretations of the mind, which is in a constant state of motion. Taking cues from the Originators, the 12 new sculptural pieces, with names taken from Ancient Greek and Latin philosophy, see circular rings layered and intertwined in such a fascinating way that you’d be forgiven for staring at them a moment longer.


Want something unique for the summer? Khouri also introduced anklets and upper arm bracelets made from yellow gold and adorned with diamonds – ideal for those looking to channel a modern-day Greek goddess vibe.
